Dr. Lea Waters
2019 Casey Fellow
The inaugural Casey Fellow speaker, Dr. Lea Waters, spoke to the community on developing happiness in children, by focusing on their strengths rather than correcting their weaknesses. Members in attendance left with powerful, research-based takeaways to develop the best in our children with a mental switch that short-circuits our negatively focused tendencies and “flicks” our attention from weakness to strength.
